Time to Stop the Debt Charade

Most politicians are gutless cowards. They care more about their political careers than they do about the purpose of their being elected in the first place. We need more one term Congresscritters, Senators, and Presidents, as well as SES hirelings, who are willing to do the right things, the tough calls, and sacrifice their careers as the necessary cost of true patriotism.

The crisis du jour in Washington now dominating the news, the so-called “fiscal cliff”, is but the latest in seemingly endless political crises that we shouldn’t be having.

We get two different kinds of problems in life. The real ones – the struggle to work and improve the quality of our lives – and the ones we bring on ourselves through poor behavior.

The more time we must deal with the latter type, the less time and energy we have to deal with life’s real problems and challenges.

The political crises which emanate from Washington are invariably problems...
